everything about God’s ways? Answers will vary.

problems? God loves us, can take care of us, etc.

To Do 1. Give each kid a plastic worm and a piece of paper. Say: Guess what? This worm is your very own pet! Name your worm, and draw a home for it on your paper. 2. Kids draw homes for their worms on their papers. Say: Let’s see if our worms can learn to write their names! 3. Kids use their paper and the markers to “teach” their worms, or they can argue why a worm can’t write. Say: Okay, then how about math? Teach your worm 1+1=2. 4. Kids use their paper and their markers to “teach” their
worm, or they can argue why a worm can’t do math. Say: These worms really can’t understand. It’s kind of like us. We can’t always understand how much God loves us or how good His plan always is. Let’s share about times when we didn’t understand why God let something happen. 5. Encourage kids to share. You don’t have to offer explanations, just listen, and lead kids to trust in God. 6. If time allows, kids decorate the rest of their paper.
